Among mainline churches, the Presbyterian Church in Chinatown has been one of the most fertile training grounds for Asian American leadership. Over the past five decades it has produced over fifty seminarians and church workers, and even greater numbers have gone into community leadership or serve the church in volunteer lay leadership positions. From Christian Education programs for all ages to formal and informal mentoring programs to opportunities for service at all levels in the church’s leadership, the community actively trains its members to be a voice for others and equips them to plan, carry out, and coordinate efforts in community-building.
